Skating lightly over my friend Mando's romantic memories, I'd say Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno's career progressed in leaps and bounds post-Roxy.

Hey RTW - good to see you. Hope things are well.

I wasn't going to delve into what happens at home while the various transformations of Pachelbel's Canon on the B side of Discreet Music are playing......

Not to mention his part in the remake of Peter and the Wolf. What an album - my first exposure to Stephane Grapelli. Manfred Mann, Phil Collins, Alvin Lee and Bill Bruford also played. I have some You Tubing to do now......

Hey, Rick - things are somewhat divorced from well right now, but knowing things are dandy with you and El Diablo Azul is an undoubted tonic to the spirits. I should spend more time down this loony escape hatch we laughingly call the Grateful Dead Forum. Pachelbel sounds like a good idea, but currently halfway through Cameron Indoor 4-12-78 and bracing myself for that US Blues good-time mind zap.

Speaking of decrepit old Brits (sorry, this includes Scotsman as well), I read this today:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/20/arts/monty-python-troupe-to-reunite-for-live-shows.html?_r=0

Not to sure this is such a good idea. We've seen some rather sad reuninon tours around this place and I'd hate to see their stellar memory tarnished.

If that US Blues doesn't provide at least some temporary respite, not sure what would.

Some things really are best left as happy memories, that's for sure. Meantime, I found out earlier today just what you've been doing to make a buck out of all that furniture you've been trashing in the service of the band.

I wish. I sold the commercial rights to the "SDH" name in order to fund construction of my compound.

Still stings though.




Excellent find, by the way. Good to see that at least some of your time is still occupied by my aura.

(OK, I've left the barn door open, it's up to you what happens next)

Yep. Then again, is being known as the father of ambient music always a good thing? He just released a new album:

I'll always love him for his work on the Bowie Berlin trilogy
